Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique" Inspires New York Mural

The cover subject of Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique" inspires a mural from artist Danielle Mastrion.

A New York City store featured on the cover of the the Beastie Boys’ Pauls Boutique album inspired a mural that will be created on the storefront tomorrow (July 26) starting at 11 am EST, according to Rolling Stone

The album, which turns 25 today (July 25), inspired artist Danielle Mastrion to create the work, which will be featured on the Manhattan corner of Rivington and Ludlow.

Paul's Boutique features the singles "Shake Your Rump" and "Hey Ladies.”

In 2009, when Paul's Boutique was reissued, the album earned a 5 X out of 5 rating from HipHopDX.

In July 2013, producer Rick Rubin spoke about Paul's Boutique and the impact the album had.

"I think in some ways [their sophomore album] Paul's Boutique was a reaction to Licensed To Ill, because I think they wanted to do something different, and I think Pauls Boutique, in their mind, was different," Rubin said at the time. "I remember hearing Paul's Boutique and it blowing my mind.

"I really loved it," he added. "I thought it was the future. When it came out, it wasnt very well-received, but it was really a brilliant album.”

    When I was younger I used to think that the beastie boys were straight cornballs, but asi got older I've realized they are real hiphop and anyone that can call them culture vultures isa true dumbass in every sense of the word. These cats have done more for hiphop then your favorite rapper had. Why do you think Nas jumped at the opportunity to get ona track with them?
